Author Biography
Lindgren, Astrid (Author)
Astrid Lindgren: November 7, 1907 - January 28, 2002

There are few children's authors more famous than Astrid Lindgren, creator of the feisty, legendary heroine, Pippi Longstocking. Lindgren was born on November 14, 1907, in Sweden. Her work has been acclaimed with many prestigious awards, among them the Hans Christian Andersen Medal (1958), the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award (1978), and the International Book Award (1993). This truly internationally known author was the recipient of the Albert Schweitzer Medal and has been honored repeatedly in her native Sweden. There is a bronze statue of her in a Stockholm park. Her picture is on a postage stamp. The "World of Astrid Lindgren" is a theme park featuring the wholesome characters of her books. The annual children's literature award is known as the Astrid Lindgren Prize.

The inspiration for this long and illustrious career, spanning five decades, is the author's own childhood. Her memories - of free and often wild play with her brothers and sister, of loving parents, of a close-knit farm community, of reading about heroines like Pollyanna and Anne of Green Gables - became the foundations of her books. Lindgren has said, "I write to amuse the child within me, and I can only hope that in this way other children as well can have a little fun."

Lindgren amused her own children by telling them stories. Her daughter, Karin, named Pippi Longstocking, and the first written story was given to Karin as a birthday gift. The next year, 1945, Pippi Longstocking won a best children's book competition and Lindgren began writing the perennially child-pleasing stories that make up her enormous body of work, some of which are the series based on "Children of Noisy Village", the fable "The Tomten", the rambunctious "Karlson-On-the-Roof", the irrepressible"Lotta on Troublemaker Street" , the controversial "The Brothers Lionheart", and the unforgettable, wildly funny superheroine, Pippi, was featured in other boo
